correspondent jim acosta. jim, what are we expecting the president to say here? >> i think the president is going to back up secretary john kerry and other officials, including jay carney earlier this afternoon, that any moves by russia to intervene in the crisis to perhaps invade that territory of crimea would be a grave mistake, in the words of white house officials and according to secretary of state john kerry. one thing that we've been pressing officials all day long, jake, is exactly who those forces are in the crimea area. we're seeing forces with insignias that appear to be blackandover or concealed. it's not clear who is on the ground in crimea. hopefully we'll get updated information from the president as to what that is. jake, make no mistake, this is, again, once again, another confrontation between the president and vladimir putin over what is happening. those events on the ground in the ukraine. >> let's bring in chief national correspondent jim sciutto. i was e-mailing with a senior official who points out that the russians have a base and the question is whether what they

and new details about putin's conversation with president obama. senior white house correspondent jim akosta joins me now with details about that call. jim, what do you know? >> reporter: first thing to point out before i detail that phone call, we're getting word that the president is at a local fund-raiser in the washington, d.c. and told people at the fund-raiser that we may be able to deescalate this crisis in his words. the u.s. may be able to deescalate the crisis in the coming days so interesting to hear the president using the words, perhaps a hopeful sign about the way the white house feels about what's happening in ukraine at this point. but getting to that phone call, yes, as we all know it took place on saturday. 90 minutes long and according to a senior administration official briefing reporters on that phone call earlier this evening, the president and vladimir putin spent much of that time during that phone call debating the facts on the ground with respect to what's happening on the ground in ukraine. russian president basically saying that he's trying to defend the ri
can deliver, beginning with our chief national security correspondent jim sciutto. jim? >> clearly the administration is getting ready to act. no decision made yet on whether to impose those sanctions or, indeed, which sanctions to impose but they want to have the options ready. and today we heard the president warn that his goal is to isolate russia and make its actions in ukraine very costly. with russian troops now swarming, sovereigning ukrainian territory, preparing likely sanctions against russia. president obama vowing today to make russia's military intervention a costly proposition. >> what we're indicating to the russians is that if, in fact, they continue on the projectory that they are on, we are going to have a negative impact on russia's economy and its status in the world. >> reporter: the possible sanctions include freezing the overseas assets of russian individuals and companies, banning travel for russian leaders and businessmen and at the more extreme end, blocking some russian banks from the international financial system, an enormously costly situation for russ
. let's bring in with our national security correspondent jim sciutto. jim? >> wolf, officials are attempting to de-escalate the crisis and avoiding any moves that may further inflame the situation. does russia expand its military intervention or does it pull back? on the ground in ukraine, there's a volatile mix of armed forces and emotions, which we saw flair up today. today in crimea, russian and ukrainian forces in a dramatic and dangerous standoff. weapons drawn and here a threat to open fire. >> i said stop! i'm serious. i'll shoot at your legs. >> reporter: and as secretary of state john kerry arrived in the ukrainian capital of kiev, a war of words. russian president vladimir putin and secretary kerry trading die metric clee opposed views of the crisis. back and forth. >> translator: the acting president, of course, is not legitimate. >> the elected representatives of the people of ukraine, they overwhelmingly approve the new government. >> reporter: and back and forth. >> translator: citizens of ukraine, both russian and ukrainian, what worries them? they are worried a

morning. welcome to "squawk on the street." i'm carl quintanilla with jim cramer back from whepg thehelping the wheels of justice turn and jury duty. good to have you back. david faber off today. futures relatively steady here despite the miss on adp. the ten-year yield is back up to 2.7 as the flight to safety fades. what else but the markets? stocks looked to open higher this morning after the dow and the s&p toastposted their best gains of the year. and carl icahn said one company has the worst corporate governance he's ever seen and steve ballmer making his first address since leaving microsoft, he did not disappoint coming to you later this hour. but first up we'll start with the markets, stocks coming off a record session, the s&p a record high and the dow and the s&p having their best day since december 18th. and adp showed the economy created fewer private sector jobs in february as the cold weather restrains hiring. you said the data has been okay. the durables and the chicago pmis have been all right. >> we have great data out of europe pmi. how could
their pierce. >> jim capretta, what do you think the president is doing or not doing to close the gap? >> i think the budget is aimed at a political statement, not a legislative change. i don't think there is a chance the many proposals will be enacted. it's a political argument the democrats can carry into the november election. the white house all be admitted that's their aim with this kind of budget. back to the issue of inequality. there is a misunderstanding of how inequality came about and whether or not it affects people on the low end. inequality happened because we have a global economy and if someone finds a new idea or research effort or something that's innovative, you can do very, very well in this country if you're a part of that. does that come at the expense of people at the low end? no. there have been many, many economic studies that have shown that just because somebody at the high end is doing better that doesn't come at the expense of the low end. so the president's proposal is really a prescription for the wrong problem. secondly, even if it was the right problem, the

in the 1950s and '60s. it's jim crow back from the dead. i wrote a piece for this in u.s. news and world report. that's my biggest problem. they're cloaking racism and bigotry per se in the name of god. i'm a christian. i believe in god. if i'm in the public domain, if someone comes to me and says, hey, here's the deal, i'm straight and i don't like gay people, my response is great. how much are you willing to pay because i have something to offer you? if you're going to be in the business of interstate commerce, the constitution and the supreme court are clear, you cannot have separate but equal grounding. they struck that down. after the brown decision and after congress passed the civil rights acts, you can't just say i don't like you, therefore, i'm going to in the public arena not serve you or accommodate you or feed you if you have money for that proxy. it's against the law. >> i want to go back to pete on that question because the reaction to the discrimination that was taking place across the jim crow south was federal. there was a federal civil rights act of 1964. we'll celebrat

and jim pinkerton with the best location of the day in sunny, miami, florida. good to see you. >> good to be with you. >> joe, i have to start with you. white house press secretary jay carney doubled down on this and said also this week, those stories, a lot of them turned out not to be true. is that a winning argument for the democrats? because there are millions of people waiting to tell their stories and they're not flattering. >> well, i think what -- what reed was talking about, i think, and what jay carney were talking about is a lot of the ads that were being played. most of them made for americans by process tearty to have a ton of problems with the stories they are telling. they did this thing where they showed people receiving cancellations on their policies. it turned out those were paid actors pretending that their policies had been canceled. one woman who said her premiums had gone up, back checkers gave that one pinocchio because her premiums have gone down. there's tons of problems with the ads being run out there across the country. >> that aside, harry reid did not, to
'll have more on what organizing for action chief jim messina has now told his team. >>> good morning from washington. it's tuesday, march 4th, 2014. this is "the daily rundown." >>> first reads of the morning, russian president vladimir putin went before the media this morning to defend his country's actions in the wake of the ukrainian revolution, arguing that it amounted to a coup that demanded a russian response. he he told reporters he would use force in ukraine only as a last resort, he claimed. but he said he reserves the right to do so. putin also said further military action would be justified because the ousted president, victor yanukovych has requested it. he said anything russia does would be to protect the citizens of ukraine. and he even told reporters that the soldiers currently in crimea, they're not russian soldiers at all. he called them local forces. now, responding to the united states, the russian leader shrugged off threats of diplomatic or economic punishments. meanwhile, president obama said monday that russia has a choice. >> over time, this will be a costly propos
at this hour. elise labott joins us and michael holmes and our chief national security correspondent, jim sciutto, joins us from washington. >>> first, elise, i want to speak with you. i understand john kerry has already had a brief meeting with the russian foreign minister, sergei lavrov. they have had a somewhat decent relationship in the past. they are set to have a one-on-one meeting any minute now. what's the realistic goal of this meeting? >> reporter: the goal, john, is really to get russian prime minister, lavrov, to sit down with the ukrainian foreign minister. that minister flew on secretary kerry's plane last night with us from kiev to paris. he says he is really eager to sit down with the russian foreign minister. that's what all this diplomacy is about today, trying to give russia that diplomatic off ramp. they want russia and ukraine to sit down, have a dialogue along with the u.s., u.k., france, germany, members of the international community with an interest. they want to get monitors on the ground in ukraine acknowledging that russia does have these concerns in ukraine, p
to end any time soon. >> accuweather's jim dickey is tracking those pacific storms and snow hitting the northeast this morning. good morning, jim. >> good morning, john and marci. a couple trouble spots we're dealing with across the country here today. first off across the northeast, new england, seeing some snowfall. it'll be light, but coming through the morning commute, cities like boston, d.c., new york city likely dealing with some delays through the morning hours. and with this brutal cold in place across the upper midwest, the northern plains, early morning temperatures, minus 13, minneapolis. minus 3 in chicago. we won't get above zero in many of these spots as we head through the day, and rainfall is moving through the west that will last through the weekend. many cases too much of a good thing going to lead to flooding and some mud slides. john and marci, back to you. >> jim, thank you. >>> to arizona now sparking a national uproar over contentious bill that could change the way gay people are treated. the legislation would allow businesses to refuse service to gays and th
to search for the suspects. jackie? >> reporter: jim, the mail carrier is expected to survive his injuries. but this crime, this crime is causing outrage. he was left injured and tied up in the back of his u.s. postal service van. people in this neighborhood near catholic university are saddened and angry that someone who works hard to bring them their mail and packages in all kinds of weather was victimized, beaten, and robbed. it was just after 4:00 p.m. when according to law enforcement accounts, the mail carrier was confronted by two men near number 50 hawaii avenue northeast. at least one had a gun. they forced him back to his van where he was assaulted and robbed of his wallet and keys. it's not clear if any mail was stolen. neighbors are absolutely horrified. many say the carrier is like a family member to them. >> i've been knowing him for probably 10, 12 years. a little scary right now. come out and something like this happens. especially to somebody you know. >> i'm just devastated. i don't -- i hope that maybe -- i don't know if any neighbors were home. combination of retired pe
evening. i'm jim axelrod. it has been a day of high tension in ukraine, in particular the southern peninsula known as crimea. russia has sent thousands of troops into crimea where many ethnic russians live. the troops were deployed after the russian parliament gave vladimir putin the go-ahead to use military force to protect russian interests in crimea. the new government in ukraine, which had a revolution last weekend, has respond bide moving their military to i state they call "combat alert." u.n. secretary general ban ki-moon said he is gravely concerned, and nato said there's, "an urgent need for desque alation." elizabeth palmer joins us from southern ukraine. liz, what are you seeing? >> reporter: jim, it's been a day of real escalation here in southern ukraine. some of the soldiers you mentioned were specifically sent from a russian military base across the border, into the ukraine. and they're taking control of roads, crimean airspace is closed to civilian flights, and the acting ukrainian prime minister has warned the nation that military intervention by russia would lead
problems before. back in 2010, there was a race for an open seat in kentucky left vacant by jim bunning's retirement. republican primary that year saw a guy you might recognize, rand paul. but he wasn't big rand paul at the time and he was the underdog going up against kentucky secretary of state trey grayson. grayson was mcconnell's main man. he was said to have hand picked grayson and, of course, publicly endorsed him. then when the election came around, rand paul crushed mcconnell's man, grayson, at the polls. in other words, mitch mcconnell, one of the most powerful republicans in washington, no one argues that, but he couldn't carry trey grayson to victory in a primary in his home state at which point mcconnell may have realized something. he had a self-preservation problem. he went out and hired rabid paul's adviser, named jesse benton to run his campaign. he could at least go out and hire the general. you have mitch mcconnell working with rand paul's guy and suddenly something makes sense here. rand paul, not even up for re-election right now has been going around, you may have s

an act of aggression against ukraine. what's happening now and what does it all mean? nbc's jim maceda is in moscow. bill neely is in crimea. jim, we start with you in the russian capital there. what does that approval of putin's request to use russian troops mean? >> reporter: hi, craig. you're right. it is pretty symbolic. the legislative body that putin requested that use of force from is a rubber stamp, upper house of parliament. and it doesn't mean that putin will now send in more troops into crimea. there are thousands there already all part of russia's black sea fleet. large numbers have been seen there over the past 48 hours, securing airports, government buildings, telecom towers. what the approval does mean is it's official now. russians have been mobilized in crimea. they can now all put their patches back on. and the approval of course gives putin more options. it allows him to strike not only crimea but anywhere in ukraine. and of course that spikes the tension even higher. >> jim, any word at this point on a timetable? >> reporter: not that we're aware of, no. but i can t
